Wüste - gezählt, gewogen für zu leicht befunden und zerteilt.








"Maybe it's important to know that there are a lot of songs where the title has nothing to do with the texts. "Wüste got that title 'cause the music is played on sand and gravel." The lyrics has nothing to do with the title, the title is because of the music which consists of stones, sand and marble splinters.
- Blixa about "Wüste".

Mene mene tekel upharsin. gezählt, gewogen, für zu leicht befunden und zerteilt.
A warning of bad luck. An Aramaic inscription, which according to Daniels book appeared on the wall during Belsazzars feast. (Belsazzar was the son of Naboned the last king of Babylon) Bellsazzar profaned the holy vessels from the temple in Jerusalem, and the fingers of a human hand appeared on the wall, writing the words "Mene mene tekel upharsin". (counted counted weighed split) Daniel interpreted the words as : "God has counted the days of your empire and made an end there to. You have been weighed and found wanting. Your empire has been split and given to Medien and Persia." This was a prophecy of the fall of Babylon.


WÜSTE
Lyrics by Blixa Bargeld

mir war
als hättest du
einen blick auf mich geworfen
ich mich geduckt
sag mir was das war

mir war
als hieltest du
in den armen mich
u tausend disteln
sag mir was das war

mene, mene tekel, upharsin
